When my sister lost her 1 month-old baby, when my friend’s wife cheated on him, when my cousin died of cancer in his 30s… some tough questions were asked.
Proverbs 2:3-5 says that if you search for understanding like you search for buried treasure, you will attain the knowledge of God.
So asking difficult questions is a good thing.
The problem is, following up, not giving up, persevering through our struggles.
When you face a problem, you can be almost certain that someone you love will face a similar challenge at some point in their life… and the answer will benefit more than just your circumstance.
If you slow down and spend the time to do the research, talk to the right people, and pray… your question will get answered… it’s a promise from God.
He wants to bless you so you can bless others… but you have to seek Him first in everything you do. Relying on your own intuition or even the smartest person you know, is not enough.
God is infinitely intelligent
He is so smart that He made you… and your parents, and your grandparents, and your kids, etc.
And I have come to believe that we do not give God enough credit for this miracle.
Did you know that 1 cell in your body is capable of storing an estimated 1.5 giga bytes and that there are approximately 100 trillion cells. Source.
And the average computer is around 6 giga bytes.
This means that only 4 cells in your body store as much information as a computer.
And there are trillions of cells.
We are very smart… or at least very CAPABLE of being smart.
And guess who made us?
When you rely on your Creator, you open the door to infinite intelligence.
These “big” problems we have here on earth, are painful because we rely on our own intelligence.
Put your faith in God, and give Him time to answer in His own timing, and your problems, or at least your worries, will begin to fade.
